Within the Material Characterization Centre, the development cell possesses a wide range of equipment dedicated to the development of manufacturing processes for new and novel materials. The cell has a dedicated development press and utilizes a number of different post-cure regimes (inert atmosphere and conventional ovens).  As new materials and designs are developed, processing characteristics are fully understood before full manufacturing commences.

With the PPE Material Characterization Centre at your disposal, we can provide a complete consultancy service including; expert polymer chemists, seal design engineering, advice and assistance in material selection, material testing, sample analysis and problem-solving on any sealing matter.
